Omnibus

Is it just me or is ‘omnibus’ just a cool word that sounds super technical and imposing, despite being a synonym for ‘box set’? At any rate, regardless of our opinion of the word ‘omnibus’, I’m releasing one. With Space Rogues 4 in beta readers’ hands, I’m working on a little side(ish) project, an omnibus of Space Rogues books 1 through 3. As a fun bonus, it’ll include ‘Merry Garthflak, Wil‘ the short story set shortly after Book 1. The other fun thing with this is that (at least right now) I’m playing with cover ideas. I like using all three iterations of the Ghost on the cover, showing it’s evolution as the books have progressed. It’s either going to be this, or just images of the existing book covers,…

WIP Thursday 3/14 Arch-Nemsis Edition

I wish there was a scene involving pie that I could share on PI day, because, holy meta Batman. Alas I don’t so am not. What I do have is Cynthia re-evaluating certain choices in her life. Cynthia asks, “Do we know what this end game is?” Maxim shakes his head, “Only that the ultimate goal is some type of take over of the GC, with Palorians replacing the Tarsi as top of the galactic food chain.” Cynthia’s tail straightens, “That can’t be good.” “I have an arch nemesis.” Wil says, having not stopped paying attention to the conversation a few minutes ago. Bon looks at Cynthia, “Is he serious?” She wrinkles her cat-like nose, “Sadly, yes.” She turns to Wil, “He’s dangerous, this isn’t funny.” “Babe, arch nemesis.” Wil…

The Ghost is getting a Makeover

Technically she got one already for book three. The awesome Ian Bristow rendered up a ‘new and improved’ Ghost for that book cover. I love Ian’s take on the Ghost. One of my big plans for this (and the end of last) year was consolidating the look of the Ghost. For the eagle-eyed among you, she’s changed looks with each cover. That’s largely because each cover has been created by a different artist, which is kinda cool in it’s own right. That said, I love consistency My grand plan moving forward is to have amazing backgrounds for each cover, but the Ghost be a constant. We’re getting there. I’m working with the awesome Sean Tourangeau On the next iteration of the Ghost. Above is the first WIP he’s sent me….

My First BookBub Deal!

I realized I never mentioned this. I got a BookBub (BB from here out)! If that name means nothing to you, you should sign up if you like getting great deals on books. They’re basically the big dog of book promo sites. Getting a BB is a big deal, getting rejected is a badge of honor among indie authors. There are two types of BB deals, free and discounted. Within those, there’s also international and US only. I got a free book, international deal. When you apply for your deal, one of the questions is are your dates flexible? Since I was applying on a lark, as I hadn’t in a few months, and now had two books, I checked, ‘yes’. I got the deal. After spinning around in my chair…
